Spring Blog Hop

Happy Spring! The Rose Blossoms team of Close to My Heart consultants welcomes you to the Rose Blossoms Blog Hop!
 



Nothing says spring like flowers, right? These ribbon flowers were inspired by the talented Penny Kentosh. If you are interested in creating your own, I'd be glad to teach you! I love the sparkle added to the center of the middle of each bloom. The bright, springy paper comes from the "Dotty for You" paper pack-- you'll be seeing more of that from me-- I LOVE the fresh colors and patterns. It's available to customers on the 17th! The cute little gifty bag was created using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge...  unbelievably simple and easy to make!  I hope you enjoyed my creations!  Your next stop on the hop is http://www.angelbaycraftinghearts.com/, but first read on for for instructions on how to earn chances to win our fabulous prizes!
